On July 21 Novell announced its Cloud Security Service offering that is currently in development and slated for release later this year. The service will enable cloud providers and software as a service (SaaS) vendors to ensure their offerings meet the strict security and compliance standards required by global businesses.
As part of our beta group, Novell is working with PivotLink, a provider of business intelligence solutions delivered via Software as a Service (SaaS). Early results of this collaboration effort were demonstrated at a Cloud Single Sign-On (SSO) interoperability event at Catalyst Conference North America on July 29, 2009. Participants included SalesForce.com, Google Apps, eXpresso Corp, WebEx and others.
By working with Novell, PivotLink can better support their customer’s security standards and policies in a cloud computing environment. This is done by integrating PivotLink’s existing business intelligence application and database security with Novell’s access management technologies so PivotLink can deliver secure single sign-on to its enterprise customers.
In this podcast, Dale Olds, distinguished engineer at Novell, and Mike Van Gorkom, program manager at PivotLink, discuss the results of the interoperability event at Catalyst.
